There are two facilities in Florence, Alabama, so at least you have a few options to choose from. The nursing homes here received a phenomenal city grade of A-. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still a great achievement. We found this city grade was considerably better than the city grade of B- received by the nearby city of Decatur. Both cities received decent grades, but Florence appears to be on a whole other level. Florence is also one of the top ten rated cities in the state of Alabama.
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this city a grade of A+ in our inspections rating. Our inspection scores are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. We also wanted to emphasize that we gave the city an A- for our short-term care category. Wrapping up its strong profile, the city were awarded a grade of B+ for its long-term care grade and a grade of B in the area of nursing. This place didn't have any weak links as far as we could tell.
